Pepsi Assembly

posted Oct 7, 2011, 6:33 AM by Amanda Sparks

    The theme of the Pepsi assembly was to talk about taking control about what you say and the things you do in life.  That words are powerful and they can hurt people.  That your life has to have a purpose and a meaning because if you didn't then you would have mindless mind.  I thought that it had a good theme even though they kept on going on and on about the same thing about that if you text and drive you might not survived or if you see someone bullying then you should do something about it and not watch happen before your eyes.  Stand up. Do something. Speak up cause if you don't you will find that you will regret it.

yes, because our ways are change everyday. something new is being created so people can have something to make their lives better and easy.

yes, because the Ipad had just came out and some people own them or 3D TV is find its way in to peoples houses even though there is no point in 3D to everything.

I think we are taking technology to too many level that are not important.

    I thought it was really sad to see what happened to the two World Trade Towers and the people who died in the towers. I didn't know how long it took the firefighters to get to where the fire was and then the tower to come crashing done when they are in it.

I thought that it was interesting because some of the stuff in it was different, it will help us understand other ways people communicate with others, it also helps us understand what people did back then.  Technology has changed over the years from sending a letter to someone to text messaging or reading the newspaper to listening or watching to the news on T.V. or radio.  Our ways of listening to music has changed from CDs to ipods with touch screens.  Something new is always coming into our world like  now the Ipad.  People get interested in thing that they get attached to it and want to spend more time with it then learn in school.
